Why We Like This Place

• You can create the wedding you want at the center’s New River Inn. Located in Riverwalk Park, it’s Broward County’s oldest remaining hotel building. You and your guests will enjoy use of the Lucy Bryan Room, first-floor veranda and front and back lawns.

• The hotel evokes a bygone era. Dating back to 1905, it features an all-white façade, first- and second-floor balconies, and a sweeping drive. A nearby gazebo completes the picture.

• A romantic ceremony on the banks of the New River will set the tone for your special day.
